Laying hardwood floors over plywood and tile in a mobile home
We pulled up the carpet from a mobile home and found some areas with bare plywood, and others with old vinyl/asbestos tile. The floor is especially unlevel around the seam of the house (down the middle). We have a nice load of oak hardwood flooring we'd like to lay down.
I'm wondering what might be the best way to prepare this subfloor? The rooms with tile are fairly level, but given they're asbestos tile, we thought it might be a better idea to lay down some plywood on top to nail into? And for the existing plywood floor, we're not what the best way to level this out? I went to lowes and they mentioned some kind of concrete leveler, but then we can't nail into that?
